Cranberry Apple Crisp

 It's Thanksgiving week and I'm sharing a recipe from Susan Branch's Autumn book.  Last year I made a cranberry apple crisp from Cook's Country, but I tried this recipe and it's my new favorite.  

 I'm using my Lusterware teacup with some Ginger Cranberry Vanilla tea from Tea of Life.  It's a wonderful tea for Fall and Winter.

 I love this teapot for November, with it's harvest of fruits and vegetables.

Yield: 6

Cranberry Apple Crisp

This is my new favorite Fall dessert. The apples turn a pretty pink from the cranberries, and the topping is perfectly crunchy. I hope you try it! I love that there's no additional sugar in the fruit mixture.


4 large apples (I used Honey Crisp), peeled and sliced 1/2" thick
1 cup fresh cranberries (I used ones that I had frozen)
3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup oats
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/3 cup softened butter


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Butter a square baking dish.
Place apple slices and cranberries in the pan.
Mix remaining ingredients well and sprinkle over the fruit.
Bake for 30 minutes.  Serve hot with ice cream.

I took lunch to sweet granddaughter, Ella at her school. 

 I also took lunch to sweet Avery.  Avery and Ella are sisters. 

 My daughter, Molly,  invited me to grandson Riley's football banquet.  We had a great time!

My son, Kevin,  invited me to go with him to Harper's Thanksgiving program and feast at her school.  I'm always grateful to be included in my family's activities.  


Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American friends!  May you have a beautiful day with family and friends.

  7. So great to see you with your grandchildren at their school events! They will always remember you attending them.
    I must try your crisp because the recipe I have uses way too much sugar! Mine doesn't include apples. What a nice addition.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. (I'm back from a blogging break and I'm enjoying reconnecting through posts.)

  8. The cranberry apple crisp sounds so good. I love the photos of you with your children and grandchildren.
